1. I had no idea the former thread was a personal attack; I didn’t read the posts. I just looked at the photos and stated my opinion, 1. “expect some darn good hosting” and 2. I wouldn’t keep it. Another Bee has used the phrase “lofty precedent,” to describe the StDs.  

 2. O.P. wrote  “I said I’m glad I don’t know you. I wouldn’t want anyone at my wedding who expected something [good hosting] based [see photos and stated costs in this thread] on a save the date ” … Okie dokie… 

3.  I’m not trying to gang up on anyone. O.P. stated “yes I did message all the other people that who were nasty too.” It’s of not a private matter if messages like that were sent to multiple Bees. I don’t believe I’ve experienced something like this before, in all my years on W/B.(And the how the heck am I going to privately message all the Bees that received similar private messages, from the O/P?)

nikbee :  Wow. this is good to know. I think the steam from the iron might be affecting it, since the paper seems to warp and the foil doesn’t stick to those areas. I was actually going to bring out my hair straightener today and move over section by section. If that doesn’t help, I’ll look into the kit. Ironically, I started the DIY mosty in an attempt to cut costs. I figure I might use the other material someday too, so hopefully it’s not a total waste. 

2XMOB :  I think you have made your point several times already. If you see, I agreed with you that your statement was more innocuous than malicious. However, this is getting off-topic and argumentative now. If I were you, I would consider it in my best interest to either move on or contribute to the topic instead of sympathy seeking, If you want other bees to know they are ‘not alone’ consider messaging them privately instead of making a public spectacle of yourself. This is all I have to say to you. Ciao!

My comment wasn’t a dig. Your STDs are very nice. Thus, I would think I would be attending a wedding that is far more than 30k. Im from CA, 30k won’t get you much. That being said, you are calling in favors from Las Vegas hotels etc. You may be only spending 30k out of pocket, but your festivities will be worth a lot more.

 Yeah it’s a lot of work and money but it’s her wedding! People spend thousands on a dress they wear once (sometimes even two because of “dress regret”) and flowers. I thought they came out cool!

So pretty! Actually a nice memento to save in memory of the wedding! Especially as family, or a close friend! If I received a save-the-date like this, I’d feel pretty special. 😄

And wow, so many jeeeeelly people who are offended by . . . someone else’s money and time??? LOL gtfo

nikbee :  How do you the gold letters? Is that what’s called foils? 

What’s your color theme? I like the gold and black.

nikbee :  haha I think that lucite looks awesome, but I’m really finding my inner hippie more and more lately, so I’m like 50% “that’s so cool!” And 50% “but the planet…” Amazing how much work has gone into them though, I think you deserve a wee break before thinking about the next part! 

ETA because I now see you tagged me twice – no, I’m waste free. I don’t buy plastic, I don’t use glitter, I have my own vege gardens, I have a rainwater tank and our septic system goes back into our land. Anything I do buy that could be considered environmentally unfriendly is reused here at home. I think your STDs are beautiful, but I’m going to speak up. Maybe you’re really careful in your life and this is just a splurge, maybe you’re just wasteful. But I would speak up if your thread suggested abuse, or animal neglect, or any other issue that needs to be spoken about. I promise you I’m not one of the bees you need to be snarky with. I stood up for you on the other horrid thread, and was flagging it like crazy. Environmental degradation is an issue that’s close to my heart, so I can simultaneously admire the work you have put in as well as your creative eye, while also cringing at the amount of plastic. Surely that makes sense? 

I’m also in awe of the fact that you can do all this for 30k! You must be amazing with budgeting!

nikbee :  Ypu said your Fiance likes wood, are you using wood at all in your decor? You could do something like this but incorporate wood. I’m sure you could figure out how to make it look amazing. https://pin.it/3aaigdjvtif4vn (Hopefully that works?)

Ooo if your soon to be hubs like wood, maybe a little wood overlay/name tag thing with a lucite invitation would be cool! Obviously your way more creative & crafty than I am, but I think the mix of the two would be a great contrast! By The Way, I’m so sorry you’ve been subject to some petty cyber bullying – this place is meant to be a collective of lots of different ideas, budgets, cultures, and relationships.  I thought your StD was really creative, shows that you put in a lot of thought & effort, and will absolutely fit your Vegas feel.  You’re clearly going to take great care of your guests – have fun!

nikbee :  WOW! our budget is also 30k and i feel like its TIGHT to fit everything in on a basic level, not even extravagant. i can’t imagine being able to afford over 1k on STDs on that budget (+ dancers, etc). What’s your secret? Do you know people who can give you deals, or are there killer vegas packages?
